We want to rejuvenate society.
But can we do so without understanding the nature of society and the nature of rejuvenation.
A society's nature is derived from community consciousness and sensitivity.
The nature of rejuvenation is based on self restraint.

The one who follows Dugdha kalp (a treatment involving the intake of milk) drinks only milk and gives up everything else.
Unless one develops the quality of renouncement or practicing self restraint, one can not rejuvenate society.

The thought of accumulating or hoarding makes a society sick.
The foundation of health is renouncement and more renouncement.
